Sausisson de Lyon by Tristar

Here is a basic recipe for Sausisson de Lyon which may give you a starting point:

Lyon Sausage

5 lbs cured ground pork
10 cloves pressed garlic
1 & 1/2 tablespoons of white pepper
4 tablespoons of salt
1 cup white wine

Combine all ingredients. Mix well and refrigerate for 48 hours.
Stuff into hog casing and tie in 8-inch or 18 inch lengths. Hang in a
cool place for 12 - 16 weeks.

Just add cure according to the weight of the meat, some dextrose to assist the fermentation and celery powder to taste. I have never yet used celery powder so can't help much as to the quantity of that, maybe some others on the forum have more experience of it's use.

Porchetta Fugazi by Quietwatersfarm

After doing a batch of large Porchetta for christmas restaraunt clients, I got to wondering what a sausage with the stuffing seasonings would taste like.

The answer is pretty damn good!

Stuffed and linked these tasted pretty special and whilst not being suggested as any substitute for the real thing it does avoid the effort involved for a genuine Porchetta but allows a hint of all that rich flavour.

What I used was;

3.25Kg Pork Shoulder (ground fine)
200g Chicken Liver (Chopped fine)
20g Onion powder,
50g Salt
75g ground Pine Nuts,
100g raisins,
50g Fresh Sage,
50g Fresh Flat leaf parsley,
15 g Cinnamon,
10g nutmeg,
10g White pepper,
good pinch of saffron

All this was ground well (except the pine nuts which were ground slightly coarser seperately) and then mixed thoroughly with the help of a glug of olive oil and a glass of reasonable Chianti.

Given the historic, roman era spicing which gives it a slight midddle eastern feel it would probably go well with a Lamb or Goat based sausage too.

Duck neck sausage by snagman


A taste sensation, this sausage uses instead of casing, the skin of the duck neck to add a dimension unlike any sausage. If you have access to the skin, please try this and be ready for the onslaught !

RECIPE (For six small )

400g Pork mince
50g Pork fat
100g chopped home made bacon
Pinch - Thyme - Cinnamon - Salt - Pepper
Clove crushed Garlic
50g Pistachio roughly chopped
Six duck neck skins


Mix all ingredients together. Wrap a small piece in plastic wrap, simmer for a few minutes and taste, adjust seasoning.
Remove any windpipe, fat pieces and loose meat from the skins, tie one end tightly with kitchen string. Stuff a quantity of mince into skin, it is quite flexible so can be filled tightly. Close off the other end, cut off excess skin from ends.
Three cooking methods;
Roast in a pan @180º in oven
Pan fry on moderate heat, turning to fry all sides until golden
Slice when cooled
Confit in duck or goose fat for 1 1/2 hrs, let cool, then slow pan fry until golden (this was my choice)

Can be served hot with Sour Cherry dipping sauce or Cold

Hi everyone, I'm posting this well known recipe wich we always use when slaughtering pigs for our yearly manufacture (sometimes tree pigs, twice a year) for family consumption. This Morcilla recipe is very similar to Morcilla de León, which is most likely were it came from.
When slaughtering,collect all blood in a tin or plastic bucket with a glass of brine and a finely chopped large onion in it.( the brine we use is 2 tblspns coarse salt/1ltr. of water, boiled for 5 mins.). Stir the blood as it falls in to avoid clotting.
Ingredients for 2 1/2 ltrs of blood.
4 large handfulls of minced back fat(ground pork fat can be used instead).
3 cups of finely chopped green onions.
3 cups of tender boiled pork skin, knife chopped finely, or boiled pig's head meat with heavy skin contents. If head meat is too fatty, reduce the ammount of back fat proportionally.
2 ltrs of milk soaked bread crumbs.
1 tablespoonfull of salt per Kg. of meat mix.
6 grms. ground white pepper per kg. of meat mix.
1 whole ground nutmeg.
2 tblspns of medium hot ground red dry peppers (chili peppers)

Mix all ingredients well,stuff in 38mm. casings,tie up the way you like best.
My suggestion is 6 to 8" links.
Cooking.Use a tall, large pot (no less than 50 cm. tall by 30 cm. diameter), fill it 80% up with cold water & place the morcillas in, hanging from a stick of wood placed across the top, making sure they don't touch against the sides or eachother.
Heat the water up to about 80º C. (don't let it come to a boil) & cook for about 1 hr, or untill done.( if not mistaken, inside temp. should be 70- 75ºC)

Chicken Sausage w/ Roasted Red Pepper, Garlic, Feta, Arugula

Chicken Sausage w/ Roasted Red Pepper, Garlic, Feta, Arugula by Big Onion


For the red peppers, I cut them and roasted them on the grill, tossed them in a plastic bag to steam then removed the skins. I put them in some olive oil with some sea salt, oregano, thyme and garlic powder and marinated them for a couple of hours that way.

3 lbs chicken thigh meat, no skin
2 red peppers, roasted, marinated, diced
2 big handfuls of arugula, stems removed, roughly chopped
1.5 cups of feta cheese in larger chunks
2-3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes (I like it spicy)

Cut meat into strips, freeze, grind, mix all spices and arugula in and stuff into hog casings.

The arugula will look like a ridiculous amount, but it'll be fine. I promise.

I may have added in a little bit of thyme or oregano, but I was making three different kinds of sausage and it was in the wee hours of the morning. I know I used more salt (3 tablespoons) but I thought that was too much when combined with the saltiness of the cheese. Two should be enough, unless you like it a little saltier.

I find that when dealing with chicken, more than with pork, I need to really freeze the meat solid and grind it, otherwise it gets too sticky to handle. Does anyone else do this?

My girlfriend said it tasted like pizza, probably because of the cheese, garlic, and roasted red peppers. I think she may have taken some photos so I'll try and get them up. It was extremely colorful, with bits of red, green and white throughout.

CHEVAPCICI by snagman


From the former Yugoslavia, these delicious snacks are easy to make, problem is it is hard to make enough of them. There are many variations, some a closely guarded family secret. This recipe is the closest I have managed to make.

250g Lamb mince
500g Chuck steak
250g Pork
4 Garlic cloves crushed
5g Salt
5g Baking Soda
10g Cracked black pepper
1.5g Hot Paprika
1 Beaten egg white

Grind meats through a fine plate, mix very well and overnight in the fridge. I was too lazy to set up my 7kg capacity stuffer for such a small quantity, so I used a disposable plastic piping bag to extrude the mix. If a stuffer is used it would be a small tube for these.
